We started this unit with a Tantamounter and a clothespin challenge. Then looked at how limitations are used by artists to create works of art. These limitations might be physical or material or conceptual. Each artist at South B was encouraged to pick a limitation and create a final work of art.
Some students chose strange materials such as actual jelly to create a painting of a jellyfish. Other students tried new concepts such as anamorphosis or creating a work of art using only white paper. Still other students attempted techniques that they had never tried before including lino cut printing and ink on silk.
Here is a look at some of the projects, many still in the works...
